From the Inside Flap:

The stories known collectively as The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes turned the literary detective into a household name and are the best-loved of Conan Doyle's Holmes stories. From "The Scandal of Bohemia," a case in which Holmes is famously outwitted by a woman, to the "The Five Orange Pips," in which Holmes is pitted against the Ku Klux Klan, to "The Final Problem," in which Holmes and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunge to their deaths at the Reichenbach Falls, the stories bear witness to the flowering of Doyle's genius.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Clive Merrison and Michael Williams are truly Holmes and Watson for the modern era in these expert productions, which bring alive the gaslit Victorian world of the master detective as never before. Includes stellar dramatizations of four classic Sherlock Holmes adventures. Starting off this intriguing audiobook is "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb," in which some spilled blood and a seemingly insignificant incident turn into something much more dangerous and life-threatening. Next is "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb" --a neat story about a love triangle involving a haughty aristocrat, who elicits the best put-down ever uttered by Holmes' acerbic lips: "I understand that you have already managed several delicate cases of this sort, although I presume that they were hardly from the same class of society, " says the aristocrat, to which Holmes replies, "No, I am descending. My last client of this sort was a king." In "The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet" Dr. Watson remarks to Holmes, "Here is a madman coming along." But the terrified banker is no madman and we are straightaway whisked into the torturous affair of a valuable piece of jewelry, a lover, and a wronged son. "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches" is brilliant, threatening, utterly mysterious, with a beautiful governess, a sly employer, and a head of hair in a drawer. Seller Inventory # BTE9780425098387
